Now that you have learned more about how social patterns in the modern world can seem overwhelmingly powerful, how has this affected your understanding of your own feelings of passiveness or powerlessness in the face of society’s complexity?

I suppose that everyone has noticed that our negative emotions throughout the day are often caused by reasons related to the society we live in. Now I understand that I experience these negative feelings due to clear factors that lie in the basis of our society. One of the reasons for it is alienation, defined by Charon as the “separation of people from one another, from meaningful work, and from one’s self.” I see that people are indeed very lonely and mostly dislike their jobs.

However, it seems that a person nowadays is more able to control their lives than it was before. For example, in the film “Titanic,” a girl is forced to marry a rich man, whereas she loves a poor one. It seems that today people are still more free in their decisions about how to live and whom to choose as a partner. Thus, although I see all the complexity of the modern world, it seems that there is some progress brought by the issues of social justice, feminism, and so on. People seem to become more understanding and sincere than before.
